The Goa government on Wednesday issued an order tightening the existing curbs to “help break the chain” and control the exponential spike in Covid-19 cases in the state. Although CM Pramod Sawant had on Wednesday afternoon announced a four-day “lockdown” from April 29 to May 3, in the evening, the two district collectors issued a ‘lockdown’ order, which was contradictory to Sawant’s announcement that other than essential services, life in Goa would come to a standstill. Bihar government has extended the period of night curfew by three hours, from 6pm to 6am, and ordered closure of shops and business establishments at 4pm, instead of 6pm from Thursday till May 15. Earlier, the night curfew was from 9pm to 5am. Stay with us for all live updates from across India.
